I have to say using the "Kevin Lowe 6 Rings" logic on the main board is hilarious because some people think you're serious.

The thing is, is that there are two tiers of Hfboards posters. Those that are sponsors and those that just lurk around on the main boards. We listen to the sponsors and they believe in this management group.

Supposedly Stauffer was greasing the wheels a bit for a buyout earlier in the year, the blogosphere was pretty much overdosing on anti-depressants over it at the time since they don't watch the games and still think he's the same player from 2006.

But then Horc had the 5 game stretch where he looked like an NHL player before he remembered he didn't have to put any effort in to keep the checks coming in, Mact(who thinks Horc should be on the Canadian Olympic team) was hired, not to mention he's friend's with Mr. Loyalty himself(katz). All which makes it unlikely that he'll be bought out, and the Oilers will move forward with the status quo of carrying deadweight on the roster while claiming they plan to "compete for the playoffs, for real this time!".

At best, we can hope for a "buddy" type deal where Horcoff is traded for another player who is to be bought out, and then both players re-sign with their original team for a better deal cap wise. Horcoff could effectively get a raise out of this, if Katz likes him enough to ok a deal like that.

The best case scenario does not include having Horcoff on the team next year. No matter the cap hit.

I don't disagree, I just don't see that as even remotely a possibility. When the owner loves a player, they tend to stick around.

Someone has to have a troll face gif of the 6 rings rotating around the heads of MacT and Lowe if the Oilers win the lottery.

Springing that onto the main boards with the old faithful "U Mad" underneath... is sure to cause a few strokes and coronaries in some opposing fanbases.

If this was true, I'd puke.

The cost of buying out Horcoff's contract before the lockout might have been too much to take on, but now that the new CBA allows for buyouts this summer, I'm hoping this year is the last we see of Horcoff.

With RNH being out for an undisclosed amount of time when he has his surgery... I'm sure that's yet another reason to hold onto Horcoff. That's much easier for management than having to go out and replace him.

That's why I really wish I knew Mac T's mind in terms of being a GM. With Tambellini, I agree 100%. It would be his excuse to go watch the Lord of the Rings and Star Wars trilogy all summer instead of having to make GMing moves. "What's to worry? We have lots of centers."

If Mac T has any sort of hopes of progression next year, that have to be one of his moves.

I didn't really read this PGT. is it pretty well just cut and paste from the past 10 post game threads?

Just don't say anything about Phoenix's fan base on the main boards. Automatic infraction.

It's time to move on from all the "going through the motions" players that have been around for this rebuild.

Horcoff and Hemsky need to go.

Addition by subtraction.
Great post totally agree!

I don't really hate Horcoff for his cap hit, I hate him because he is a awful hockey player. The guy has been useless since his all star appearance. Time to move on.

If Horcoff sucks (and he's not very good) what does that make Smyth?

Horcoff is a horrible NHLer.

Smyth just isn't an NHLer.

Kevin Lowe is the worst contract by far

Guess who's back in the Hawks lineup on Wednesday night? None other than Patrick Sharp.

Hossa Toews Saad
Sharp Bolland Kane
Frolik Shaw Stalberg
Bickel Kruger Bollig

I wonder if the Hawks consider a Gagner-for-Hjalmarsson+ type of deal. He sees the toughest minutes on that team, and has kept his head above the water in that role. Great shut-down defenseman that would look great alongside Justin Schultz next season. They'd probably love the thought of getting an offensively capable 2C.

Hossa Toews Saad
Sharp Gagner Kane

Best top-6 in the league?

A top 10 offensively 2nd line center is worth a crapload more than a #4 defensive defenceman that doesn't hit. Do you think Gagner is worth as much as Nick Schultz?

Somebody needs to send smyth a copy of fubar where the guy breaks his leg to get WCB. It might give him an idea. I think he needs to take one for the team this summer

He's top-20 offensively as a C.

Hjalmarsson is 2nd on the Hawks in ES TOI, behind only Keith.

Seabrook plays a whole minute less per game at ES.

He's no #4 defenseman. He's at worst a #3 who may be ready for a #2 role alongside a true #1.
